After his sensational return to the Royal Rumble, after spending several weeks at home for the birth of his eldest daughter Roux, Seth Rollins immediately started a feud with the WWE Swiss, Cesaro, who the Messiah of the blue show attacked without reason.
in one of the previous episodes of Friday Night Smackdown, back on the scene. After several attacks on the rings of the blue show, Shinsuke Nakamura arrived between the two athletes, however, in the last episode of Smackdown aired on FOX last Friday, with the WWE has decided to formalize a match between the former Universal Champion and the former Intercontinental Champion right in the ppv that will air tonight and that is Fastlane.
Apparently, however, this feud should be absolutely temporary, with the efforts and attention of Rollins that should soon return to Cesaro, in what is his primary feud in view of the Grandaddy of Them All.
Seth Rollins steals the show at Fastlane
As reported in the usual daily newsletter of the Wrestling Observer, by the well-known journalist Dave Meltzer, the small feud that began on Friday between Seth Rollins and Nakamura, should only be an interlude in the rivalry between Cesaro and Smackdown's Messiah himself, with the Fastlane match that it's just one way the company has chosen to "keep warm" Seth Rollins ahead of Wrestlemania 37.
In fact, to the microphones of his Newsletter, Meltzer said: "It takes everything to build a Wrestlemania match between Cesaro and Seth Rollins, so Shinsuke Nakamura is just another step in this feud." After these declarations, it is therefore very likely that Cesaro will also appear tonight in the last WWE PPV before the Showcase of the Immortals, perhaps as an interference against Rollins, to help his friend Nakamura to defeat the heel of the moment.
We'll see how the Stamford federation's plans evolve regarding its two blue show athletes, but all the clues already lead to a showdown on the show, which fans are already mouth-watering in anticipation. , given the athletic and technical quality of the two athletes.
But the most staggering statistic coming out of this is that Seth Rollins has won his first pay-per-view match in over seven months. The last man he beat? Dominik Mysterio. This match against Shinsuke Nakamura was also a great showing for the Japanese Royal Rumble 2018 winner - who seems to be having the best set of matches in his WWE career in 2021.
Who would have thought that it would take five years to get a more motivated Nakamura? His match at Fastlane was also better than his previous Survivor Series encounter with Rollins back in 2018.
